Mariners already have D.J. Peterson on radar for 2015 season
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Mariners are expected to be in the market this offseason for a right-handed power bat, but if they can't find an external option, then an internal option could be prospect D.J. Peterson, according to The News Tribune.

"His age and experience might be working against him," general manager Jack Zduriencik said, "but this is also a pretty good hitter. You don’t shut the door on it. You leave it open and see what he does.

"Coming out of Double-A to the big leagues is challenging, but he’s going to be in the Fall League. There are a lot of people who’ve been around him who think this guy is the real deal. We’ll bring him into spring training. He’ll get a fair shot. What happens, happens."

Peterson has primarily played third base in the minors, but he is expected to see significant time at first base in the Arizona Fall League. With Kyle Seager blocking his path at third base, Peterson's fastest route to the majors could be first base.

"I played a lot of first base in college," Peterson said. "It’s a position that I’m acquainted with. I’m very used to it. It wouldn’t be too much of an adjustment."
